Studying is an active process of re-coding information. It is not just looking at the notes and reading them out loud. It's taking the notes that you copied in class and saying; what are the patterns? How does this information go together? What's important? What's not important? What's the sequence of events that is happening here? When I am taking notes in class, all I am doing is writing as fast as I can. I have to go home. I have to take that information and re-code it, understand it, make sense of it. Studying also means, not doing your homework. It is beyond homework. It is something of how can I understand and remember this information, and say how it is similar from something that I learned before. When we work with students, we ask them not only to assign time to do their homework; but also, on a daily basis, to make time to study. Then we show them the techniques, the activities that they need to study; not just go in your room and study.
